The real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight. The real problem is the misunderstanding and lack of information that exist. If a blind person has proper training and opportunity, blindness can be reduced to a physical nuisance.

Welcome to the NFB of Louisiana

The National Federation of the Blind of Louisiana provides a network of support and encouragement and promotes an understanding of the real problems of blindness... the attitudes and misconceptions which we and the general public have about blindness. We believe that with training and opportunity (and these are important) the average blind or visually impaired person can lead a perfectly normal life... not just dream about it.

 

If you are blind or visually impaired you should know about the National Federation of the Blind of Louisiana. Why? Because the National Federation of the Blind of Louisiana is an organization of hundreds of people like you working together to promote better services and opportunities in education, rehabilitation, employment, and legislation for blind and visually impaired persons. Together, we are “changing what it means to be blind” and we need your ideas and energy. Through our affiliation with the National Federation of the Blind, the largest organization of blind persons in the country, we have developed a very effective voice in determining the direction of laws and programs which affect blind and visually impaired persons in Louisiana and across the nation. Just look at some of our many services and accomplishments and you will agree that working together we can make a difference!
